bought a new campin rig

i know not rranger related, but the ranger will be towin it, its a 2000 lil bear brand tear drop campin trailer, i got it for a real good deal, and the thing weights nothing, we pulled it over 50 miles to my parents place because i didn't have my truck, and they had the correct size trailer ball to pull it, i got it for $2,500, and it is a nice trailer

i know its got GM style rally wheels, but they are ford bolt pattern, i thought about getting a couple of the wheels that are on my truck, but i would have to run a real low profile tire to fit under the fenders

That cute lol. I've looked at those before, the new ones are actually really fancy. Not enough room for my liking but should tow really well!

Hah that thing looks awesome. Perfect size to tow around with a ranger. The trunk space and fold out gas cook top are key. I've always had a hell of a time talking the woman into going backpacking...something like that might be the ticket to at least getting her out camping. How long is the bed?

I laughted at first, but after looking at it...thats a sweet little camping trailer. Perfect for actually camping, rather then having a house sized trailer that some people take with them and call it camping....lol

Do it! Those tires would last a long time remember that.

its got brand new tires on it already, and can't really see getting rid of them just yet, besides the chevy rallies add just a hint of nostalgia to it i thought about shaving the walls to white walls

well today was the first day that i was able to get it hooked up behind my trailer, i had to change the 1 7/8 coupler on the trailer to the 2" coupler... i have to say with the short little rise i get out of the 2" drop hitch, and being 4/5 the trailer sits pretty much level, and pulls really nice behind the 2.3, and for the record, yes it has a bra on it, it keeps from beating the **** out of the front of the trailer
